Hi everyone, I have a family member who canâ€™t boot into windows anymore, and they have very important data that needs to be recovered. I have had something like this happen before to my computer it wouldnâ€™t boot into windows, im not sure if itâ€™s the same problem I havenâ€™t looked at it yet. Well anyway all I did was put an old hdd in it as the master and the one that wouldnâ€™t boot I set as the slave, and basically I just pulled the data off it by using the old hdd. Thatâ€™s what I suggested that we do with theirs, but I have been thinking about trying to use a gpart boot cd, and if I am not mistaken xp makes unpartionted space of about 8 mb, so I was wondering if I could just make that a secondary partion, shrink the current partion like 2 gigs and then put that on the 8 mb one then put a fresh copy of xp on the newly created partion. Then all I should be able to do is go into my computer see the old partion and move the data off into the new one, or should I just stick to putting an old hard drive in it then moving the data? Could something go wrong with gpart and make me lose everything? Sorry if this doesnt make any sense.
